April 4, 1947- June 29, 2018
Ms. Lottie Aldea Carolynne “Carolynne” Gould (née Turgeon), 71, was among six people killed in a highway crash on June 29, 2018. Carolynne was on her way to the family cabin in Meadow Lake Provincial Park when her SUV and another SUV collided on Highway 4 north of Elrose, SK.
Carolynne is survived by her sons: Jody and Jay Gould of Regina; grandchildren: Kordin and Kailey Gould; two sisters: Marlynne (Monty) Samson of Meadow Lake, SK., and Linda (Ted) Hemsworth of Victoria, BC.
She is preceded in death by her parents: Fernando “Ferdy” and Mary Turgeon of Meadow Lake, SK.
Carolynne was born on April 4, 1947 in Saskatoon, SK to Ferdy and Mary. After high school, she taught in Goodsoil, SK. for one year before going back to school in Saskatoon for Cosmetology. While she was working in Saskatoon, the Swift Current School Board approached her to develop and teach a cosmetology program at the Swift Current Comprehensive High school. She accepted and moved to Swift Current in 1969. In 1973, she married Egbert Gould and they had two sons.
Over her 30 year career as a teacher, she assisted with track and field, officiated competitive swimming, and became one of the first female head coaches of high school wresting in Canada. After retirement, her passion for cooking led her to work as a cook at a hunting camp in northern Saskatchewan. Over the past few years, she returned to the wrestling community as a Pairing Master along with her son, Jody. Always willing to help future generations along their way, she continued to substitute teach until her passing. She is deeply missed, though she left an indelible mark on all those whose lives she touched with her generosity, wit, and dedication.
A celebration of Carolynne’s life is scheduled for Saturday, September 8 at Swift Current Comprehensive High School cafeteria at 1100 11th Ave NE, Swift Current. A short program begins at 1:00 pm with open microphone and luncheon to follow. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Carolynne’s life. Condolences may be sent to 6106 Sherwood Drive, Regina. In lieu of flowers the family asks you to support this go fund me page (www.gofundme.com/mrs-gould-memorial) to help support the Swift Current’s amateur wrestling program in Carolynne’s memory.
The family would like to thank the First Responders, RCMP and the Emergency personnel of Rosetown and Meadow Lake, SK for their efforts, care and dedication.
